High Dimensional Heterogeneous Data based Animation Techniques for Southeast Asian Intangible Cultural Heritage Digital Content

To develop novel techniques and tools to reduce the production costs and improve the level of automation without sacrificing the control from the artists, in order to preserve the performing art related ICHs of Southeast Asia.

Despite the advantages of 3D computer animation technology, due to the diversity of ICHs, digital preservation still faces enormous technical challenges. For example, storing traditional dance and dramas in a DVD format inevitably results in a huge video database; encoding, querying and retrieving information from such huge databases is theoretically very tricky to handle. These challenges, on the other hand, open new territories for innovation. >> Readmore…
